Building stories



I wouldn't promote the evil that is Amazon, but Chris Wares 'building stories' suddenly dropped from £30 to £7.50 and I'm not big enough or rich enough to resist that. In case you are not aware this, is a giant box filled with 14 comic books of various sizes (a joyous and exciting surprise to me, like  unwrapping a present) It gives new meaning to coffeetable book being four legs away from actually being coffee table.

Anyway, these gorgeously presented tales of ordinary lives tinged with sadness the world will keep me busy for a while. I'm a bit obsessed with the layouts sort of like those diagrams I  used to draw while revising but more interesting (it just occurred to me perhaps other people don't draw diagrams to revise, not being visual like me)

Of course its best to add another comic to get the free supersaver delivery,  So I bought a little nobrow for Mr nut there, who is enjoying 'time to make a monster' very much.




Anyway, this is a bargain.

So long




Lovely fireplace garland with the mushroom lights, bannister adornments bedecked with foxes and.. More mushrooms.... Red and white tree with candy canes and... Mushrooms. And foxes. White ones. Till next year, awesome decorations.

SALE




As some of you may know, I'll be moving house next month (new studio, yay!) so I'm clearing out some old stock. I'm not going to be printing any more notebooks, so now is the perfect time to by one half price. They make great presents and you can tell your friends that you've started your christmas shopping and look smug (unless you are friends with me, because I started mine in August) but seriously- buy some notebooks. And prints. They are selling fast, so don't miss out on the once in a lifetime offer.

More Faces



not last months- I'm very behind- but the ones before I stopped working for the summer. I'm back at work now and taking on extra work so if you have any heads that want painting.. check at my shop, or contact me deborahchamiop@gmail.com

Screen

It took me three attempts to burn this very detailed screen. But when it works think it's so pretty, like lace... Perhaps I'm mad. Anyway, next stop, printing!

Goodbye summer...


You were fun

But now it's time the others went back to school..



And I got back to work. 
Which is also fun, if you happen to draw pictures and play with dolls for a living.
